Hello! We have a use case that I haven’t seen explicitly in Bubble’s marketing material and wondering if Bubble might be a good solution.
Essentially, we have two sets of customers (supplier and buyers) and we’d like to give them a portal to interact and negotiate deals with each other. I think of this a bit as a gated, managed marketplace.
Some key requirements we have are:
- Buyers and suppliers can negotiate prices and quantities via form submission to each other
- Forms display calculations in real time (i.e. show a “total cost” before form submission and updating a record)
- Buyers and suppliers can only see relevant data (i.e. supplier A cannot see information about supplier B)
- Once orders are “approved” by both a supplier and a buyer, we’d like to trigger a formstack doc to be created, ported to Bubble’s database, and displayed on-page for the customers to e-sign.
There is no need for checkout or payment processing.
I wonder if Bubble is overkill, we’ve tried to accomplish this with stacker+airtable, but the forms do not display calculations prior to submission. And the sync times are pretty long.
Thanks for any advice!
